|The Chicago Bulls are the No. 1 team in the Eastern Conference, with the emphasis on the word team.|
We've dealt with a lot of adversity. We've dealt with it great. We're fighters. At the end of the day, that's what matters. We know that everybody brings something different to the team, and everybody respects what that person brings to the team. And we know that everybody's very important. Hopefully we'll all be healthy by the time the playoffs start, and then we'll really see how good we are.
I'm doing something that I've been dreaming about since I was a little kid. Playing for the Chicago Bulls. Playing for a team that people are now talking about being a contender. A coach who's very passionate about what he does. Great teacher. MVP player on my team. Those are all things that I'll never take for granted. I'm not worried about what happens in the future, or what happened in the past.
I've been very lucky. Very blessed. I feel very fortunate to be in the situations I've been in. I've had a lot of great experiences in my life so far. I feel like there's just so much potential on this team and we're not getting caught up in expectations or all that. It's just enjoying playing basketball. Enjoying the moment. Not worried about what's going to happen next month. Just really focus on enjoying playing the game the right way.
Things are looking up for the Chicago Bulls. And I've been here when things weren't.
It's exciting. We're all about the right things. Just focus on one thing, and that's winning a 'chip. And to do that you've got to stay focused on the moment. Enjoy. Get better. Not get caught up.
